    What?! If that right, that's pretty crazy. Is it a rare or one-off piece?

    No, they're just some steel hangies from CF. $5 but someone is trying to sell them for $75

    UNLESS they're not the same and the CF ones are a rip off of something else?

    They are incredibly similar..

    Edit: Theres not a easy way to tell either way to be honest, not like glass where there are little ways you can tell. But I pity the fool who chooses the $75 price tag over $5.. But I guess some people pay for brands!

    I believe the ones currently being sold were ripped off from an original design, from Jeremy someone, he had a hissy fit because someone apparently stole his design. However, the ones from CF do look extremely similar. Indeed they do Becky, I can understand for discontinued stuff, but for things still in production, it seems ludicrous! I love them on CF Hazel, next time I do an order they may well find their way into my basket xD!
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    I partly agree with the discountinued.. But I still wouldnt pay the ridiculous prices some people seem to be for IS. People rip it through the roof! They're just plugs for christs sakes. And with alot of the IS graphic plugs the designs are horribly off centre/not level/dichro doesn't hit the edges. Which bugs me.

    Me too tbh. I do have to remind myself a lot of the time it's like 30 for a pair of plugs I could pretty much get a lot cheaper, just by switching brands, for example FF. But yes, people do. A lot of IS is wonky as unfortunately.
